This has been a very busy week on the investment front. Much busier than I expected to be. I made 3 purchases this week, one in Pepsi that went through on Monday and another 2 later in the week. I'll have the write-up about the other 2 purchases out tomorrow. I also had a stock analysis on Deere & Company (DE), the maker of John Deere tractors. Pretty much the iconic farm equipment maker as everyone can recognize the brand. Other than that it was a pretty smooth week at work and we finished yet another well. Unfortunately the cold weather is back and I had to work outside in it for a few hours yesterday, but no complaints as it meant that I got to go home for a few days.
I love when the first of the month rolls around as that means I get to start seeing all of the progress and dividends that all of you received over the past month. It's always awesome to see those dividends increase month after month. Even though I don't get to enjoy those dividends that you receive, I feel like it's my journey as well. Although it kind of is as that's exactly what I'm aiming for as well.
I'd like to thank everyone that stopped by, commented, and share posts from Passive-Income-Pursuit this past week. I truly appreciate all of your support and I love this DG/FI blogging community that continues to motivate and inspire me.
